    Private gun ownership is democracy's immune system against violence​





    December 21, 2012

    The raging debate on so-called "gun control" makes it clear that many people still do not understand the role of private gun ownership in a free society. The best way to grasp the truth about the Second Amendment and private gun ownership is to think of it as democracy's immune system.

    In the human immune system, when an invader threatens the body, the immune system rallies microscopic "members of the rebellion" who surround and destroy invading microorganisms, thereby preserving life. Without the immune system, the body would be taken over by an invading force, resulting in the body's eventual death and destruction.

    In the world of geopolitics, when an overarching tyranny begins to spread and multiply, the immune system is citizens with guns who rally to the defense of the People and beat back the invading force, thereby preserving the health and liberty of the nation.

    What really keeps people free in society, it turns out, is a government that is afraid of what the people might do if they are pushed too far. That's a good thing.

    "When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." - Thomas Jefferson​
